At first glance, the restaurant is not very welcoming and often looks like it's closed. However, it is open for business if you find the right door. When we walked in, we were greeted with a powerful smell. It wasn't that of delicious Chinese food cooking but of weed and a hint of burning incense, seemingly to cover it up.... More

My sister was visiting from California and was anxious to have Chinese food "like they served at the Nankin in Minneapolis." I did, in fact, research this on Trip Advisor and others and determined that Red Dragon would be a good choice. Boy was I wrong. The food was terrible. The chicken wings were okay, but how do you ruin... More

I have been going to the Red Dragon since before my children were born. They are now 28 and 30 years old. This was always a family favorite for us. From the poo poo platters, the lo mein, and virtually anything on the menu, it is ALL GOOD! The Wanderers' punch has always been a one of a kind treat... More

I ordered a drink recommended by waiter. I ordered food. It was good food but after having a few sips of drink I noticed a dead bug in it. I asked him to see the bug and that I was grossed out and don't want more...he still charged me full price and said they don't care the excuse and it... More

The food was good, our waiter was VERY good. The Wondrous Punch (That the RD seems to be famous for) was enough for the five of us... Negative - someone was smoking in the bar, and it came straight into the dining area. I had the hot and sour soup - as our waiter recommended to me, even the 'small'... More

The best Moo Goo Gai Pan in Minneapolis. The outside of the building isn't much and the atmosphere isn't great, but the food is worth the price.

This place is known for their huge boozy punch bowls. It's possibly the most sketchy bar I have ever been in, in my life. We had some drinks, and cream puffs. The food looked(and tasted) like they just microwaved something frozen in the back. The drinks were very strong, but why pay $13 bucks for a big bowl of gut... More

this place used to be cool---cheap eats that made your belly turn..sadly now they are just known for their wonderous punch. it is and be careful, their cocktails will put you under the table...try the almond delight drinks....only drink there DO NO EAT! you'll have belly issues for sure.
